Avena Canadiense Recipe Competition: Mexican Oat Lovers Submit Over 150 Recipes!
Did you ever think that you can make the Mexican dish tamales with oats? How about oats ice cream or lasagna? Honestly we haven´t, but the Mexicans have!
As part of the promotional activities, POGA held two recipe contests through the Avena Canadiense Fan Page profile targeting Mexican users.
Launched in February, the first recipe contest concluded successfully with 3 winners and 64 recipes submitted by Mexican users. Given the incredible response, POGA launched a second contest in May which drew in a whopping 160 oats recipes! They include:

The winning recipe was a healthy version of the Spanish cookie dessert called “alfajores” which swapped sugar with dates, stevia, coconut and yogurt. This oats alfajores dish was created by Montserrat Petriciolet, a 19 year old resident of Oaxaca, who won $600. Four more recipes were distinguished for their creativity, nutritional value and taste. They included a delicious oats vegetarian lasagna, healthy oats truffles, oats risotto and avedonuts.
